Block scheduling is one approach to school scheduling. It typically means that students have fewer classes (4-5) per day, for a longer period of time (70-90 minutes). There are three main types of block schedule investigated in this review.

This knowledge review is about identifying key findings about teaching, learning and assessing communication skills with children in social work education settings. Its main focus is to enable social work educators to apply these findings in the design and implementation of social work programmes. Knowledge review published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in November 2006.
This knowledge review is for people who teach social work (that is, academics, practice teachers and service users) and for researchers. It may also be of interest to students and social care workers. Report published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in June 2006.
This review seeks to determine what social work students might learn about assessment from textbooks and frameworks. It aims to be a resource for social work educators in developing a curriculum and selecting textbooks. The knowledge review is for social work educators who are responsible for teaching assessment, especially those who are responsible for developing the curriculum and selecting textbooks. Review published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in April 2005.
This knowledge review was conducted to identify good practice in the teaching and learning of assessment in social work qualifying courses to assist social work educators in developing teaching frameworks. However, a lack of evaluated teaching methods has made it difficult to recommend one or more approaches to teaching assessment skills. As a result, this review makes recommendations to guide the development of good practice in this aspect of the social work curriculum. Review published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in November 2003.
Research brief that presents the interim findings of the research based on evidence from a census survey of LADOs in 2011. The survey collected data on allegations of abuse made against teachers, non-teaching staff in schools and further education (FE) teachers referred to LADOs in the period 1st April 2009 to 31st March 2010.

Report that clarifies the complex education and care divisions for children under 5 in Scotland, and provides practical recommendations for making integrated early years services a reality, so that Scotland’s Early Childhood Education and Care provision can match the best in Europe.
This report draws on the views of service users and carers from the Social Work Education Participation (SWEP) website steering group and members of the General Social Care Council (GSCC) Visitors group who inspect social work programmes with GSCC inspectors. Report published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in July 2011. Review date is July 2014.
This paper outlines a project commissioned by the Department of Health which focused on participation in the undergraduate and postgraduate social work degree. Focusing on how service user and care organisations can develop their involvement in the undergraduate and post graduate social work degree and drawing on successes of the first two years, the paper then goes on to identify existing barriers to successful partnership and possible ways forward. This project was a joint venture between Shaping Our Lives, Department of Health and SCIE.
